jaja it was there since like 1 week

like 3-4 days it was on stock and now it ran out ....

but i was so in love with the CROSSHAIR 5 and the dream bulldozers and it made me too ignorant :S

Ive been thinking it for days now and finally I will probably get a it and make a sandy bridge build instead of bulldozer :S

Same here, I was debating about the BD or just Build me a SB... I already have the SB processor, Just waiting on this board...

Im using the CHIV right now with 1090T and its great. But Never went Intel in a Long long time since pentium2s lol. Gl.

I'd go with SB to be honest.

Ivy Bridge will work with 1155 socket motherboards, and SB is already known to be a great architecture. So far we know nothing about Bulldozer except that it will constantly be delayed, and that they NEED 8 cores to even consider competing with a quad core from Intel with 8 threads.

BUT I WANT IT NOW !!!

I just got the i7 2600K, 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600's in Racing RED! , and a new OEM copy of Win7 Pro - 64bit.

So I NEED this Board NOW !!!

Still up for debate ... the System COOLER ... while I like the CoolerMaster GeminII S that I have, and it's one of the FEW high performance Air coolers I can get to fit in the HP case ... I'm thinking about maybe trying out the Corsair Hydro Series H60 ... anyone care to share an opinion ??? or recommend something else ???

Also up for debate ... graphics card upgrades ... do I crossfireX a 2nd HD 5770 or do I buy a new ASUS GeForce GTX 560 or ASUS Radeon HD 6950 or something else ???

And if it's on SALE, do I spring for a 64 GB SSD to take advantage of the ISRT ???

I know if only money where NO object I'd just do it all ... but alas ...

Do you know the clearance for a heatsink in that case? I have used the Corsair Hydro series but they always seem to fail to live up to my expectations.

As far as the gpu goes, I would stick with a single 5770 for now and get a SSD. As far as I am concerned, it is a must have for any build. I have a LOT of computers and all but one have an ssd. That one is the biggest pain to use. Save up and get a kick ass gpu when you can afford a 6950 or the next series is out.

Thanks for the feedback Ovlazek,

- I've been reading some poor reviews on the Corsair hydro coolers as well, but was still curious.

- I didn't measure, but I know I originally bought the COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 which is I guess 141 mm tall and the top of it would just hit/rub/keep the side cover from seating 100% properly ... which is why I jumped down to the COOLER MASTER GeminII S ... but I just tested it on 'Core Temp' and got a 57c high under gaming load. So ???? not sure if that's too high, for the Rig listed below ... and was thinking IF I should get something better for the NEW rig ?

- Yeah I tend to agree with your thought, do a small SSD now that I CAN afford, and then budget for the ASUS ROG MATRIX GTX 580 later

- PS {off topic} Give Smyth a big Welcome back Home ... we kept him safe for you though he's a little more used up and A LOT slower than you might remember ... you guys have a bright future ahead for your team if Tambo doesn't mess it up ... but hopefully we can win one or two cups before you guys start giving us a run for our money in the West.

Another thing you have to consider with coolers is that you bought Vengeance ram. That stuff is pretty tall so you also have to worry about clearance over it. I'll check into coolers under 140mm that have clearance over that ram tomorrow but it's too late to right now. :

Off topic- Smytty coming back to Edmonton is more of a mentorship thing. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a good role model that actually wants to come to Edmonton? Not many quality veteran free agents are jumping at the bit to come here instead of a place like LA or SJ. The guy is a heart and soul Oiler. I'm going to shell out $500 and get a pair of tickets to the home opener this year.

Your new rig looks pretty solid. I'm not sure about the heatsink though, it's VERY large. You may want to look into getting one of the Corsair H50/H60/H70's, or Antec 620's... possibly a low profile cooler to blow some air onto the mosfets while overclocking such as the GeminII S or something similar from Noctua. What's great about the Maximus, is you can sell your X-Fi sound card if you so chose, considering the onboard audio chipset allows the X-Fi CODEC (yes, it's a codec for onboard, not a chip). So you can go Crossfire/SLI if you so choose. I know I'll be selling my sound card if the board is affordable. I don't want to spend over $250 for it though.
Thank you very much for your warm welcome here!

Yes, maybe i'll better buy another heatsink and also maybe a topblowing one, but here i'm a bit unsure about the space consumption whether a tower fan will easily fit into my case, a topblowing cpu heatsink could be incompatible with a top or back mounted extra case fan...

Concerning the audio system: I'm very unsure about the gaming quality, gaming compatibilty and performance of the onboard "SupremeFX X-Fi 2"-solution in comparison to my X-Fi Titanium card.
Strange: The ROG-Asus Homepage lists Realtek-Sounddrivers for MIVGZ atm!
Ok, to be honest i'm NOT going to miss those always faulty Creative drivers and the ROG Homepage for our MIVGZ is not completed yet: The memory compatibility list is missing whether the CPU support list has been added the last days.

*UPDATE*: Oh, i've found the memory support list on the original ASUS Global-Homepage here! Now i must have a look into it, if my selection of G.Skill will fit to first BIOS version 0208.

P.S.: All important webshops here in germany are posting: "not yet", "release in few days", "takes up to 2 weeks", "reservation possible" ....
